Do mind-altering substances help or hinder the awakening process?
Kimberly discusses the two loose categories of mind-altering substances: manmade, and those provided by the Earth.
If you take mind-altering substances such as marijuana, LSD, ayahuasca, peyote, San Pedro, DMT or hallucinogenic mushrooms, and feel guilt, consider exploring your societal programming and beliefs about people who regularly alter their minds.
By asking two simple questions, you can gain insight into whether mind-altering substances are assisting, or hindering, your awakening journey.
1. Does the expansiveness remain after you return to your regular state?
2. How do you treat other people when you are “out in the field?”
By reviewing your answers, you will determine if the results of your altered states have a lasting impact on your self-development.
Blooper at the end!
